All the recent wet weather has been causing problems with hoof abscesses in horses feet. Abscesses are caused by bacteria entering the hoof via a crack or split, the frog or any other weak point such as the nail holes. The bacteria thrives & grows in the moist conditions & pus forms, the hoof is a solid structure & unable to swell, so even a small amount of pus can cause pressure & immense pain, the horse is often 3 legged lame & owners may even think he has a broken leg.
